Notes:
BIG SIT…UVALDE, TX COOK’S SLOUGH Bob Rasa, Uvalde 10/10/10 I set up camp at the wetlands pavilion on Saturday 10/9/10 at 3:48. Lots of butterflies to photo…simply a beautiful day…88 Monarchs recorded flying by…. 85 degrees. Low tonight 63 forecasted. Richard Redmond joined me at 5:50. The whole area swamped with many dragonflies…mostly Common Green Darners. Good evening before the count started: 24 species…Lesser Nighthawk; Wilson’s Snipe; and Eastern Screech Owl among the goodies. Also, we had a Cooper’s Hawk drift in over the Pavilion. During the first early morning hours Common Yellowthroat and American Kestrel up early. Nice morning…early on…59 degrees. Clouds rolled in early with very high humidity making everything feel wet. Tripp Davenport came in and promptly found the Osprey pretty far out…it did come in close near us to photograph. Started to clear at 1040. Afternoon very slow…but pleasant. Two visitors to the site: Ralph Gonzalez, Radiology Director, Uvalde Memorial Hospital and his wife. Last species for the twenty-four hours was recorded at 1949. A Long-billed Thrasher, doing his best Groove-billed Ani call. During the night twenty some Cattle Egrets but were only seen at first light…Pretty close to us  Total Species for the 24 hours was 48.
